What started as the settlement of Baker's Park swiftly grew into the bustling town renamed Silverton after the discovery of the wealth of silver ore at the base of the San Juan Mountains. Other mines soon drew more attention to those looking to make their fortunes in the Western Expansion and gain a new beginning in the wake of the Civil War.
With the benefits of civilized living in the forms of schools, churches, and the railroad came also a darker side that could not be avoided. Saloons aplenty competed for space with dry goods and trading posts, brothels were opened across from boarding houses, and the streets teemed with gunslingers, entrepreneurs, painted ladies, and the upright alike, rubbing elbows to an occasional spark.
It takes all kinds to make Silverton work, they say, and the town has only just begun... will you find your way down the Million Dollar Trail to success, wealth, and influence? Or will your journey take you down a more sinister path to crime and corruption? In the untamed West, all it takes is a single choice...
